Oxford Energy Podcast – EU Hydrogen Vision: regulatory opportunities and challenges [GGP]

The podcast first outlines a number of EU documents where the outlook and ambitions are discussed, before focussing on the main aims of the Hydrogen Strategy and its ultimate goal of encouraging renewable hydrogen while allowing some role for low-carbon hydrogen. The discussion addresses the financial and regulatory incentives that are being discussed to encourage investment, and also covers the prospects for infrastructure development and the rules that will need to be in place and adopted to achieve the EU goals. Finally, the question of whether the current gas regulations can be adapted to suit the development of a hydrogen market is posed, with the authors expressing the view that more radical change may be needed.
